    Baragain, I wasted ader on surprise chests and essence. I have no issues with bosses, finished event in two days, 3 hours each day or so. Did hard boss 50 times (run through, kill), even solo at lvl 40 though Im just 32. was 31. Who could have issues with that final boss,soslow... Farming will grow level too fast. I have no idea what you mean by my fault, I have also no idea why do you decide to teach me. this thread is called 'feedback thread'. So only thing I said, my feedback, I hate cloak being level 40, useless final reward. it is unfair, and there is no reasoning behind it. And I did know cloak is lvl 40; it does not, however, change what I said.

    Where are the increased item drops?
    Before this event I could get few legendary items ... here and there ... but now the drop I get is sugar beets .... sugar beets ... sugar beets ... and more sugar beets . I already have 9K sugar beets ... do I need more?
    Decrease the sugar beet drop ... we want to get items as well. I can't even collect 100 gold per day with these drops.

    so far my luck at this event has been less than satisfying. entering the dungeon the whole group cannot be seen or the locations displayed. the drops by ANY monsters are very rare, i think we went through half the map and 2 of us had 3 drops after killing a plethera of these monsters.. plzzzz guys do something about this. ill try this one last day today and if nothing has changed, i give up on this event....

    I would express the problem differently... Nothing wrong with the drop rate of Sugar Beet. But definitely somethign wrong with dropping Sugar Beet in replacement of other drops. This would be EASILY remedied by dropping Sugar Beet ON TOP of other, normal drops.

    Also, the Gifts should NOT contain coins. Coins should drop normally, and Gifts / Loot should be loot. Unless coin bags contained hugely bonified amounts over and above what normal coinage loot might be.

    Different approach to resolving issues :)

    I can't burn the sugar beets fast enough; they are everywhere, especially where item drops should be.

    If they are so valuable to DSO, they should be valuable to us as well. The vendors could buy them at, say, 1 gold each. :) :)

    The presents are really just a mechanic for the event that masks the standard drop, and gives a way to tally drops for some of the quests. Take a standard loot table, randomize the drop, if what is selected falls in Category A put it in a Green box, Category B Blue, Category C Violet, etc. The drops are no different than what you would get from any other map except for the expanded loot table to include the event items. Everything gets put in a box.

    There is the additional drum roll effect of opening the items that is fun at first. But, its novelty goes away fast as you have to clear inventory to keep opening and bounce around tabs which just slows down the process. Then the item notification portion center top screen goes on and on and on well after you have finished.

    My opinion(s) on the Winter Solstice event for 2014:

    1. Event duration is way too long.

    2. Same as last year makes it a litte bit boring.

    3. Farming snow essence is a complete disaster. It's Christmas for Gods sake, people are supposed to be grouping up and having fun together, not fighting each other and grinding for essence, starting WWIII -.-

    I got most of my Snow Essences from presents, since farming snowmen wasn't a very good idea.

    You'll find atleast 10 players in each open map that contains snowmen, everyone fighting their butts off just to collect snow essence, and increasing hate even more.

    It would be better if snowmen were in dungeons instead. Even if each gave like x5 essence only, it'd be much better than open areas. Trust me.

    That's all.

    Can I ask what's up with the codes posted on FB? Are they for just a few or are they free for all? 'SUPPORTFIGHTDSO' is the second one that doesn't work.. and I also got 'banned' for 2 hours due to multiple errors.

    Are you pulling my leg or what?
  9. The codes are only active from from 06:00am to 11:59pm daily (German Time) It may be that you are entering the code after it has already expired. Make sure to check the official thread/Facebook to get the most up to date code and use it within the appropriate window of time. A handy tool for finding out the time in Germany is here. Today's code of "SUPPORTFIGHTDSO" expired one hour and fourty min ago, approximately an hour and ten min before your post

    I understand your frustration as I am in the United States and I am either sleeping or working most of the time the codes are active. The way I compensate for this is by entering the code in the morning before I leave for work and claiming it when I get home. It takes me all of three min.

    Thanks for the info, but it's not helpful in any way. I know my way around the internet and I can find Germany's hour. The only problem is I've tried this this afternoon (something like 6-7 hours ago). My post here and on FB was when I realized that I've got that 'ban', not when I tried to enter the code.

    Check your FB page for God`s sake. I am not the only one for whom the code didn't work. Just look there there are loads of people complaining about that, and if you look at the timestamp they are well in the window.

    You're really gonna bark at a forum moderator for not checking BP's Facebook page to see what people are complaining about. It's not his Facebook page and he certainly gets enough complaining to deal with in what he already volunteers to do for you.

    He gave you a thorough and valid response based on the information you provided. Just say thank you, and then explain further if you need more help.

    ON the point and question, their is definitely a time stretch in that 6 hour empty space. I too missed 2 codes entering them late, "no campaign error" message that should have been in the open window. I did as YOUWINORYOUDIE suggested and started putting them in, in the morning on the way to work. Haven't had a problem since.

    I cant get the daily code to work when i type it in the voucher box, it says there is a code error. Is today's daily code DSOPLAYER4EVER?

    Yea, cus the code stopped working at 11:59 PM German time and that was over 4 hours ago... so you are out of luck. Next one should be around in about 2-4 hours so keep an eye on the announcement page. Don't be too sad, it was only an Amphora key.

    I guess that I'm one of the lucky ones, I've entered the daily code at 7am pacific time each morning and gotten all 15 so far.

    As always xD
    "Nightmare Location“Frosty Wasteland”
    The Snowman and the Santa each have the chance to drop their costume and Big Paw will always drop one item reward from the entire Christmas Event, ranging from components to upgrade your reindeer mount to unique Christmas gear.
    This is what I got (plus 20 draken and 5 gems, 3 flawed and 2 splintered):
    If the snow ball trowing emote is that big event piece than LOL!

    As for Big Paw hard mode:
    I think that always drop 400 honey cookies is not correct. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that 400 is not equal to 250. First time it dropped 400 but last 4-6 dropped only 250.
    And from the golden gift i always get a blue or purple gear (not sure if that's supposed to happen or even this drop is ...).

    Nightmare mode is only twice per char. If it is like last year you can go anytime you want provided you keep the items.

    Did it twice with my dk and premium and wasted some more ofmy cots-anders on red ess. Killed big paws twice, plus the snowman once, so got 3 of the 4 possible drops. Could not kill mad santa cause he healed every time i engaged in close quarters. Got two legendaries (pauldrons and claws), some gems, snowman costume, snowman emote, and a bunch of melts. Nothing major.

    Premium and good stats are pretty much required.

    What would be a better idea is if you can trade x amount of sugar beets for (x/3) in snowflakes from Thabo, Shady John or some other NPC. That would resolve the crazy sugar beets to snowflake drop ratio. Though I've completed the event, it's ridiculous how many sugar beets I get from M1/standard dungeon grinding. And that's on top of the sugar beets I carried over from last year's leftovers.

    Yes, that would be a good idea too.
